Keegan Bradley shot a final-round 64 and then beat Justin Rose on the first playoff hole to win the BMW Championship.
As the third of four FedExCup Playoffs, the BMW Championship sets the final positioning for the Tour Championship. As players jockey for a top-30 position to advance to East Lake, the top-five players get the bonus of controlling their own destiny as each is guaranteed the FedExCup (and $10 million prize) with a victory at the Tour Championship.
At the end of the day, Xander Schauffele (T3) and Bradley (1st) moved from outside the top 30 and into the field for the Tour Championship.
Schauffele moved from 41st to 18th, while Bradley jumped 46 spots, from 52 to 6th. It marks Bradley’s first Tour Championship appearance since 2013.
To make room for the duo, Jordan Spieth (T55) and Emiliano Grillo (T61) slid out of the top 30. It is the first time in Spieth’s career that he’s missed a start at the Tour Championship, capping off what has been a stunningly poor season for the three-time major winner.
